Maryland Governor Wes Moore recently appointed board member Arevia Michele Wayman to a second term on the Caroline County Board of Education. Ms. Wayman was initially appointed in 2021 to complete the term of a member moving out of the county. 

After Ms. Wayman sworn in by Caroline Clerk of the Court Terry Lord at the June Board meeting, President Rick Barton thanked her for her service. “We are so lucky to have you with us,” he said, “and the county is fortunate to benefit from all that you bring to the board, students and staff.” Ms. Wayman thanked fellow board members for welcoming her back for another term. 

The role of the board is to provide leadership and oversight for the Caroline County Public Schools by setting goals, establishing policies, and committing resources to benefit students. The Board is comprised of three elected members (one from each district), two members appointed by the governor, and two non-voting student members (one from each high school). Each member serves for a term of four years, and appointed members are eligible for two four year terms. Student members serve for a term of one year. The superintendent of schools serves as secretary-treasurer of the Board.

Ms. Wayman retired from Caroline County Public Schools in 2009 after 36 years of service. She began as a classroom teacher and subsequently served as teacher specialist, school administrator, and Coordinator of Minority Student Achievement, Parent Involvement, Service Learning, and Social Studies. 

Following retirement from CCPS, Ms. Wayman worked as a literacy coach and substitute in Delaware. She subsequently became the Coordinator of Diversity and Inclusion at Chesapeake College and just recently fully retired from that position.

Ms. Wayman received her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Morgan State University. Her Masters in Elementary Education and Education Administration was obtained from Salisbury University and George Washington University.

Ms. Wayman is active in the community as a member of Fellowship Chapter #58 OES, Allen AME Church, the Lockerman Alumni Association, the Mid-Shore Foundation, the Caroline County Branch of the NAACP, and the Morgan State University Alumni Association. She is also a trustee of the Order of the Eastern Star. Ms. Wayman has two children, both graduates of North Caroline High School, and resides in Hillsboro with her spouse.
